    I've wondered the same thing. It generally seems to occur when the name
    of the song, movement, or whatever is longer than average.

    Your client can't deal with long filenames. Keep the names under 31
    characters or use different software.

    I suspect the client is doing this for the benefit of *other* people
    whose software can't deal with long filenames.

    Ok that make sense. My client is MT Newswatcher.
    Is that so Simon?

    Actually I noticed this with Thoth. Sometimes it would do the
    long filename correctly, sometimes it would not. I suspect it
    is related to the way the file was encoded on upload and decoded
    on the server. Unison hasn't exhibit this behaviour yet.
